Metaverse course is organized as a joint course in cooperation with Technology University od Dublin and Cag University. The course will be delivered in Second Life, an online virtual environment, through avatars. Participants from Ireland and Turkey will engage in the same virtual environment for this course. Students will see how the environment functions and evaluate the way in which a virtual content is created. This course also aims to teach students how to manage an effective team work in a virtual and intercultural environment while dealing with many barriers such as cultural difference, language barriers, time difference, technological problems etc. This course will also give the opportunity for interaction, collaboration and networking between participants and lecturers from different disciplines, institutions and cultures. Technological components of Virtual Worlds, ethical and social issues related to Virtual Worlds will be covered during this course. So, after one semester study, students will be able to understand the role of Virtual Worlds in today’s society.
